Solenoid Gate Locks are used when one requires a swing gate to be locked. This is usually in the closed position but in some cases can also be used in the open position. Solenoid Gate Locks can be used on single leaf swing gates and double leaf swing gates (check the design application of the different styles of solenoid locks)
Solenoid gate locks are suitable for solar applications. The lock opens by electric impulse into the lock which makes the tongue move and release from the strike (the strike is stationery).
Electric gate locks are required on all swing gate installations where a single gate leaf is 2.5m or wider, where high winds are present (on any size gate leaf), where there is a high level of cladding on the gate (which creates an effect of a big sail) and in any case where the gate is required to be locked.
Queensland Gate Automation recommends using a relay in all cases with an electronic lock.
